      Great place for families!
      Just a 10-15 minute drive north of Downtown Columbus, here lies Northern Worthington and Southern Lewis Center. Living here is really peaceful and quiet, and crime is virtually non-existent. Apartment developments are on the rise, and reasonably priced. Olentangy Schools are one best districts in the state, and if you decided to move south of Lazelle Road, Worthington Christian Schools are a really great choice. There is also a bit of an Indian community due to the Chase Bank headquarters just in case you were wondering. Attractions include the Orange Pool, and a 10 minute drive to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, as long as the Zoombezi Bay water park. Plenty of golf courses as well. You'll also never run out of places to dine in and shop as the Polaris mall and the plazas surrounding it will have more than plenty to offer. If that's not enough, prepare for the planned development, a 350-acre park called “Planet Oasis,” which would include activities such as an indoor waterpark, BMX racing, and an area for indoor skydiving, according to a video highlighting the amenities of the development. The theme park development would also include hotels, restaurants, and a conference center. Developers say Planet Oasis would be located in Ohio’s Delaware County along Interstate 71, which from Polaris, is a 10 minute drive. The proposed 350-acre park would be larger than the Disneyland theme park in California by 265 acres. Blue Horseshoe Ventures CEO David Glimcher said that he envisions the park as “an escape from everyday life.” Glimcher added that the project is expected to boost the area’s economy, bringing nearly 15,000 jobs to the area. Construction on the proposed theme park is expected to begin in December, and the first phase of the park is scheduled to open in 2019. So I don't know about you, but I truly do love living here, and would definitely recommend anyone, especially those with families to move here!
